Swans are very protective parents. The male swan, called the ‘cob’, can be very aggressive in order to protect his young.
Earlier this year, Simon of Wildlife Aid went out to rescue a cygnet that was stuck in a fence, near the River Thames. He had to face a very angry cob that wouldn’t let anybody near his poor baby. In the end, Simon and the cygnet were all OK.
